This chapter introduces the basic principles from which relativistic quantum field theory can be constructed. Local relativistic quantum field theory is based on three basic principles which in combination lead to a powerful and elegant formalism, which appears to allow a remarkably accurate description (the so-called ‘Standard Model’) of at least three of the four fundamental forces in Nature: the strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions. An overview of Chapters 4 to 19 is also presented.

Keywords:   relativistic quantum field theory, formalism, electromagnetic interactions, strong interactions, weak interactions
